Armstrong to Host Treasure Savannah on Saturday, March 1
(Feb. 25, 2014) — Registration for Treasure Savannah Spring 2014 is underway! This semester’s event will take place on Saturday, March 1 and will gather Armstrong students, faculty, staff, and members of the community to volunteer in service opportunities throughout the city.
Treasure Savannah is Armstrong’s bi-annual day of service that celebrates the university’s long and rich history in Savannah through multiple service projects throughout the community. The event began in 2010 as part of Armstrong’s 75th Anniversary Celebration and Armstrong President Dr. Linda Bleicken’s Inauguration. The event was such a success, that it has continued as a bi-annual tradition.
This semester’s event kicks off at 8:20 a.m. on the steps of the Student Union for the traditional group photograph. Volunteers will then depart by bus to one of the following locations:
• Savannah Chatham Animal Shelter
• Union Mission Grace House Kitchen
• Forsyth Park
• West Broad Street YMCA
• Armstrong Campus Cleanup
• Keep Savannah Beautiful
• Homeless Camp Cleanup
• Girl Scout Camp Cleanup
